Writer misunderstood prayer

Regarding Jeff Miller’s letter of Dec.4 (“Example shows prayer fails”), God is not “the guy”! He is Almighty God, the Creator of the universe and all that is in it – including Mr. Miller.

His letter borders on blasphemy, and it makes me sad that Mr. Miller seems to think “the guy” is some genie who immediately grants our every wish. A lack of knowledge of His Word fosters this sort of self-serving mind-set.

In Isaiah 55:8, the prophet wrote: “’For My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways’, says the Lord.”

Elizabeth Barrett Browning eloquently penned: “Earth’s crammed with Heaven, and every common bush afire with God; But only he who sees takes off his shoes ... .”

My prayer for Mr. Miller is that he comes to realize God’s love for him, despite his vitriolic attack.
